When the last thing you want to do is “wait”

Wait. That is a word that I really don’t like to hear; I think it’s a word that not a lot of us like to hear, to be frank. This word brings so much stress, especially in a fast-paced world. We have grown up in a society where we want what we want now!   … Continue reading When the last thing you want to do is “wait”

Hindsight is good for faith

I went back to my really old blogging posts…like Xanga old! I was so amazed at how I used to be and how much God has changed me for the better.

Forgiveness isn’t just for you

It is recess time and everyone in my fifth-grade class is anxious to get outside and play, including myself. There is laughter around me, of kids having fun, as I’m trying to swing as high as I can. When I finally stop swinging I hear a girl calling my name. I face in the direction … Continue reading Forgiveness isn’t just for you

On Thursday of the week I arrived in Vancouver, I decided last minute to participate in the hostel group activity to Quarry Rock hike at Deep Cove. I was in for a surprise – big time.
